Or I would bring some ouzo. :) The turks have a drink thats basically the same as ouzo but I forgot what its called. afghans being muslim generally stay away from hard liquor.

Jason I'm confused about the whole Islam-and-alcohol situation. Is there a distinction made between different percentages of alcohol? I thought it was all or nothing -- you either drink or you don't. But periodically I hear of Muslims who cite religious reasons for drinking wine but not hard liquor. What's the deal?

I really don't know enough about islam to make an informed statement about why they don't drink hard liquor. In general its all or nothing, but I have seen people of various muslim cultures drink beer and wine. I think it depends how religious they are.
Either way, its usually ok to bring alcohol into a muslim owned restaurant -- most moraccan places I have eaten in around the country were BYOB.
